Transcript THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE -To Plead for a Return of Constitutional Government- Vol. 9 FORT WORTH, TEXAS, JANUARY, 1958 No. I Why Try to Stave Off Communism in Foreign Countries While Adopting It Here at Home? Seagram's Potent Product Loosens Scientific Tongues We thought for sure we were losing our grip and seeing things on November 22 when a scientific article in the press leaped out at us with a set of predictions to end all predictions. This article told of a meeting of some of America's top-flight scientists which was held in New York but not in a dignified audi­torium hall or assembly where scientists are accustomed to gather. In­stead, they got together in the directors' room at the Seagram Com­pany's headquarters to help celebrate the lOOth anniversary of the firm's service as liquor distributors. From the program outlined for the future, it appeared that the egg-heads had gotten just a wee bit souped up on the potent product of thC'ir host before giving their conclusions in an interview to the press. The conference took the form of a symposium on "The Next Hun­dred Years" and following it the scientists gave out some weird pre­rlirtio., s o! Lhings which we may expect in the Bright New World of Tomorrow as the result of scientific exp eriments and accomplishments. First off, Americans of the future will work only from four to eigh t hours per week according to this prediction. The scienti sts don't say what we will do with all that spare time but no doubt they will fill in this gap later. Twins, t riplets or singles in infants will be born according to the wish of their parents; there will be tr ansmission of thought to others without the utterance of a word ; every one will enjoy perfect "mental health" and human impulses will be controlled by pills and drops; synthetic food will sustain us and this will be made from the sun and ocean water and there will be a universal vegetable diet for all alike. What floored us even more was the prediction by a Nobel prize­winner who was present and participating in a big way. He offered the suggestion that there would be set up in the New World Order a bank for human spare parts where one, apparently, could get replace­ments for worn-out organs of the body like buying a new inner tube when a tire blows out. Right here we are compelled to warn the scientists of the possibil­ity for a wide margin of error in such an arrangement. We can visual­ize, for instance, a situation where the bills of lading might get mixed up and a wrong spare part sent out on a rush order. This could lead to confusion and embarrassment such as some poor sap waking up .from the anesthetic after an emergency operation and discovering that a wrong spare part of the human anatomy had been sewed on in place of a lost ear and finding, let us say, a thumb or a big toe sticking out from the side of his head. Far be it from us to assume to give advice to the eminent scien .. t is ts but we do not think that their next meeting should be held in Seagram's emporium no matter how inviting and attractive such a prospect may be. We think they should hold their future meetings at the general headquarters of the W. C. T. U. We threw victory over the Communists away in Korea; we have drunk toasts with Khrush­chev and Bulganin; we sent them congratulatory telegrams on the anniversary of the Bolshevik Rev­olution and we turned our back w hen the patriots of Hungary had Communists on the run. That's how we hate Communism. There is a report that when, and if, we get a Sputnik into the air, we will not put a poor little dog inside as the Russians did. We will use a live man for a model t raveller to the moon. And, boy, would we love to be the one to select the passenger? After all , we can always get a new Chief J us­tice. In 1933 a President of the United States, with con­temptuous disregard for Constitutional procedure, ex­tended recognition to the barbaric and Godless Soviet u.,ion by the simple expedient of personal correspond­ence with the ruthless assassin who was then its Dictator. Later this recognition of the Kremlin outlaws was made officio( by the American government. In the interven· ~ng quarter century since this unfortunate action, the rnfluence of the USSR hos swollen, e x tended and bur­geoned out to cover a vost part of the earth's surface. Conversely, the prestige of the United States as a great sovereign power, has dwindled and shrunk because of the corroding influence of a relentless ond incessant str·eom of Communist propaganda which has flooded the chanr.t;:)s of communica'!ion in this country and per­m;, uted every area of human activity, Under this hellish­ly clever and subtle barrage of poison, citizens of the American Republic have been persuaded to gradually divest themselves of their bas ic r ig hts a nd freedoms as they have steadily absorbed the scarlet coloring of this deadly philosophy. Fundamental principles laid down bY the founding fathers have been surrendered one by one, Constitutional Government shamelessly abandon .. ed and the black mantle of Marxism draped over the nation's economy and way of life. There is no time like the beginning of a New Year for taking stock and for earnest self-analysis to deter~ine what is wrong and where we have blundered. This is true of individuals and of nations alike. As 19_58 looms over the ho~izon a serious appraisal of the State of the Umon 3:nd of our dome~ti~ and foreign policies of government leads '7S to the mescapable convictiOn that we are a nation of morons be­ing bhndly led by political Quislings down the road that ends at the graveyard of dead nations. While we publicly decry Communism and shrink in horror at the idea of having this odious designation applied to us as a people, we dare not, in honesty, lift the curtain and reveal how far this deadly cancer has eaten into the vitals of our own society. Karl Marx was the father of Communism and, as it turns out, is the posthumous architect of major policies of the three branches of the American government. Few pieces of impor tant legislation have passed the Congress in recent years, few directives or executive orders have been issued by the White House and few rulings have been handed down by the Supreme Court which did not, at some point, make con­cession to the Communist Manifesto and bear its unmistakable imprint. Recently we suffe red the humiliation, as taxpayers, of seeing an entourage of 135 high officials and employes of the Fedea'fal govern­ment journey all the way to Par is, at incalculable cost, for the pt-o. cla imed obiective of perfecting plans to "contain Communism'' in countries abroad while here at home the Supreme Court had recently released thirty-eight Communist conspirators from jails, penitentiaries and lower court convictions and the White House had selected fout men for high government posts publicly listed as affiliated with an in­ternational organization which an official committee of the Congress had branded as the American branch of the Communist apparatus. A proverbial injunction warns us that chari ty begins at home and by the same token, the first places from which we should seek to root ou t the lethal weed of Communism are not the decadent countries of Europe but the agencies of government, schools, colleges and universi· ties, churches, labor u nions, movie, radio and television industries, (Continued on Page 2) Millions of Americans Think It-The Southern Conservative Says It Page 2 Patriotic Americans Trv To Oust ACLU From Campus Real Republicans, not the Mod­ern type, are trying to oust the American Civil Liberties Union from the campus of Indiana Uni­versity at Bloomington, according to information received at this office. The ACLU there is headed by a notorious left-wing professor at the University and the outfit is working hand-in-glove with the NAACP we are informed. There is a strong campaign under way to force white students to room with Negroes in the dormitories. Most Americans are familiar with the defense of Communists which the ACLU has offered in the courts. Additional informa­tion concerning this outfit's Com­munist sympathy is given in House Report 2290, 7lst Congress, 3rd Session, January 17, 1931. THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE High Coud Asked To Rule On Black Hen Who Lays White Eggs Harold Maxwell of Wynne, Arkan­sas, is all confused and in a letter to Farm and Ranch asks for a solu­tion to his problems. At the height of the Little Roclc debacle 11-'lr.

"I would like to know if I will be permitted to plant my while and black peas in separate rows of equal width and length, or will I have to mix them up and sow them broad­cast? ''When I harvest my peas, can I store them in separate but equal bins, or should I play safe and mix them?

I haven't tried dye to change the color of the egg, but I will take this hen before Judge Davies when he gets through dragging Gov­ernor Faubus around.

''Would you please send me the new words to the 'Star Spangled Banner?' It's all mixed up down here with 'Old Black Joe' and we do want to get it right so we can be 100 per cent American again," Why Try to Stave Off Communism-Continued from Page I January, 1958 Case For Impeachment? (Dallas Morning News) If you turn to Title 18, Sec. 1385, United States Code Annot­ated, you will find that, as amend­ed in 1956, it reads: "Whoever, except in cases and under circumstances expressly authorized by the Constitution or Act of Con!p'ess, willfully uses any part of the Army or Air Force as a posse comitatus or otherwise to execute the laws shall be fined not more than $10,000 or imprisoned not more than two years, or both. This section does not apply in Alaska." If that is the law, as Congress intended it to be the law, it would appear that the defenses of one Dwight Eisenhower would be one or more of the following: 1. Little Rock is in Alaska. 2. The President was not trying to use the Army to execute the laws but was merely trying to put a spoke in the political wheel of Governor Faubus. 3.

Janu5ry, 1958 MacMillan's Love Of The Soviets Comes To Surface On more than one occasion we have pointed out that Harold MacMillan, prime minister of England, is an In. ternational Socialist. This was not because we had any special informa· tion not possessed by any one who has informed themselves concerning his political beliefs, but because his book "The Middle Way" reveals clearly and without eq-uivocation his Marxist beliefs. Now he comes out, after persuading the President of the United States to bring a delegation to Paris to con· sider means of "containing COmmun­ism" and proposes boldly that the United States, along with all other Western countries, sign a non·aggres· sian pact with the Soviets and agree to co·exist with them in peace and harmony. He knows, if he knows anything at all, that living in peace and harmony with the war· mongering Soviets is on the same lev­el as lying down in a den of rattle· snakes. The leadership of England is more sympathetic to the Soviets than to the United States and demonstrates it on every possible occasion. Their tie with us is based on the fact that we continue to shovel out millions of dollars to them to sustain their Social· ist economy. There is practically no difference in the beliefs of Aneurin Bevan and Harold MacMillan and the only no· ticeable distinction is that the former is a rough-neck and the latter a high­brow. Both of them regard the Krem. lin as tops. From a Dallas subscriber: uPer­mit me to say that I think your paper is the most amusing and yet the most thought-provoking that I have ever read." Thanks, but we're afraid that there is more tragedy than amusement in the current edition.-Editor. Two twelve-year-old boys at Dallas robbed and looted a school then, in order to destroy their finger prints, the litt:e hoodlums set fire to the school and $10,000 worth of property was destroyed. This is vandalism of the most vic4 ious nature but, to be perfectly honest about it, is it any worse than having armed troops shove school children around with a bayonet at their back? Corruption breeds corruption. Some Fort Worth capitalists are establishing a cancer clinic of the first magnitude in that city which, in our opinion, is one of the most humanitarian projects in which philanthropists can engage. It is to be hoped that the time will come when the cancer of Interna­tional Communism which is eating the heart out of the American Re­public will also be recognized and similar means provided to combat it. The PTA got aU "het up" over the latest attempt of the Federal government to steal the Texas Tidelands again but have remain­ed strangely silent on diabolic at­tempts to mix the races in the schools of Texas, charged Lloyd Riddle of Dallas. He attributes it to moral cowardice on the part of the PTA.

Georgia Attorney Trips Up The Human Oracle N.E.A., as Expected, Uses Crisis To Demand Federal Aid Hike Eleanor Roosevelt is never one to confuse issues with facts but il is seldom she is as neatly tripped in a misrepresentation as she was recently by R. Carter Pittman of Dalton, Georgia. (Houston Chronicle) All of a sudden the entire nation has become excited over something which should have been evident to all for many years, the fact that our educational standards have declined and are far below those of not only Western Europe but even of Russia. And as was to be expected. the Na· tiona! Education Assn., \"thich it· self is so largely responsible for the lowering of standards, has pounced upon this national dissatisfaction as a lever with which to gain its great ob­jective, a vast expansion of federal aid. The N.E.A. has come up with a program that is far more ambitious than the school construction aid meas· ures which Congress has rejected. This time the emphasis is not on aid for building schools. That part of the program is buried down in a broad group of proposals calling for a 1958 federal expenditure of $1,100,- 000,000, to increase by big jumps annually over a period of five years to $4,600,000,000 in the fifth year. The N.E.A., unhappy over the ad­ministration's anticipated request for $200,000,000 to $250.000,000 federal aid to education, is striking while the iron is hot with ts tremendously big­ger proposal for fe<!eral cash to aid states in school construction, scholar. ships, raising teachers' salaries and what not. In the lexicon of the Liberals a "reactionary" is any one who op­poses changing American Consti­tutional Government to Interna­tional Marxism. As with so many other pressure groups and notoriously in its own case, the cry is that more money will cure anything. The N.E.A. did not have the integ. rity to admit that the main trouble with the American primary and sec. ondary educational system is some­thing that money won't cure. It is a deterioration of standards. It is "pro· gressive education" which puts the happiness of the pupil ahead of learn­ing. It is the theory that "life-adjust­ment" classes such as dancing are more important than mathematics. It is the killing or subordination of com­petition, the idea that Johnny must not be made unhappy by letting him know that other pupils are making better grades, the practice of shunt· ing pupils on to the next higher grade whether they make passing marks or not. Powerful forces within the N.E.A. itself are primarily responsible fo.r the lowering of standards. But now instead of admitting its errors and demanding a tightening up of the basics of education itself, the N.E.A. seeks to use the current dissatisfac· tion as a springboard for vastly in­creased federal aid as if more money were the cure for all evils. A Brooklyn Grand Jury has recommended that uniformed po­licemen be assigned to every pub­lic school in New York. According to the jury's report conditions in the schools are alarming and school authorities are utterly un­able to cope with the situation. By all means, let's continue to in­tegrate the schools. In her question and answer column in a left-wing magazine she was asked why her husband included in a deed to property which he owned in Geor­gia a racial clause providing that the property could never be re-sold to Negroes. "He told me at the time that he disliked the restriction but there was no other way a deed could be written in that area," the oracle replied with­out hesitation and added that her hus­band was forced by Georgia law to accept this restrictive clause. There is only one thing wrong with her statement according to Pittman, renowned Georgia attorney and form­er member of the Franklin D. Roose­velt Warm Springs Memorial Com­mission. It just isn't true. The restrictive racial clause in the Roosevelt deed was the first and only one in Georgia history it was pointed out. They don't need one in that State but Roosevelt took no chances and put it in any way. It would have been much simpler for her just to have written "I don't know" but she avoids using that phrase as religiously as she passes up non-integrated banquets. She has built herself a reputation for being able to answer all questions on all subjects and although she goofed this one, it will not feaze her in the least. Before too much credence is given the Gaither report, Congress should first find out if Gaither has been soft on Communism and pooh-poohed fears of Communism as aMcCarthyism". Could be that this report is another method of urging steps that wilL a spend us out of existence".

The United States Fifth Court of Appeals in New Orle:ms re­versed the order of Federal Judge William H. Atwell which held that Dallas public schools must be integrated at mid-term. And early this month. the Supreme Court of the United States actually passed up the chance to free an­other Communist when they turn­ed down the application of Morton Sobel. convicted along with Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, for a re­view of his case. These facts together with an announcement from the Depart­ment of Justice that no efforts will be made from that source to "strengthen" the infamous Civil Rights law at the coming session of Congress would seem to indi­cate that professional integration­ists and others sympathetic to the cause of Communism which is, of course, back of the integration movement. have decided to temp­orar ily call a halt to their mon­grelization program. It is believed that nation-wide reaction to the Federal Police State in Little Rock and to the outbreak of violence and sex of­fenses in schools which have been integrated, news of which they are having a hard time suppress­ing, has served as a warning even to hard-core integrationists that they have gone too far and may have bu ilt up a Frankenstein who may yet destroy them. While the press, radio and other mediums of public communication have either ·ignored or played down the horrible conditions fo l­lowing integration, the situation is known to be getting out of hand and the pro-Communist elements who initiated and have prosecuted the movement for integration now seem inclined to ease off until public indignation cools. In our opinion, the real reason is too much competition from cer­tain segments of the regular press and from special pol itical, educa­tional and religious publications which have taken over the job the Daily Worker was supposed to perform. There are hundreds of periodicals who are promoting the Communist cause faith fully with the result that the Communists' own or~an is being crowded out of the field. Our Deepest Gratitude For Being Remembered at Christmas Time It is a similar case to that which existed when the Socialist and Communist Parties were crowded o(f the bal1ot at election time by the two Major Parties who stole their platforms thereby making it unnecessary for the Socialists and Communists to go to the expense or putting out their own tickets. Soviet leaders have always in­structed their followers in this country to let those who are sup­posed ·to be non-Communists do their work for them and that is what is happening. Off-hand, we would say that the Daily Worker will not be missed. Their editorial policy will be car­r ied on by magazines, newspapers and other publications which do not carry the Communist symbol on their mastheads but promote the Communist cause through their news and editorial co1umns. We have tried to thank each and every one of our subscribers for the generous gifts of money for the paper and for the personal presents wh ich came to us during the Christmas holidays and we take this occasion to again tell them how deeply their kindness and generosity is appreciated. We hope we may continue to prove worthy of such thoughtful­ness and consideration by those who do us the honor to subscribe to our paper and to the principles of government for which the pap­er stands. There is one lovely lady, how­ever, whom we have been unable to thank for her wonderful gift because she is and has been since receipt of it, at some unknown point in one of her numerous trips around over the country and our thanks and expressions of grati­tude will have to wai t until we can catch up with her. The gift was a beautiful hi-fi record player for our office and the wonderful background music which it affords will give us plea­sure every day in the year and should inspire us to greater effort. In connection with do-gooders and meddle1·s generally, a good friend in Long Beach, California, tells this story: Two Boy Scouts were standing on a stTeet corner when questioned by a passer-by as to what their good deed for the day had been. The older Scout answered: "Sir we just helped a little old lady across the street". At this point the second Boy Scout broke in: "It sure was a hard job, too, and she put up such a fight we had to carry her. She didn·t want to go across the street.'' From a West Palm Beach, Flor­ida patriot: "You write so beau­tifully and think so clearly and have such a grand sense of humor that the deadly serious condition of our country that you must per­force write about should slip the mo1·e easily into reluctant minds. And it does, too. Heaven knows that something has to break through the dense apathy and humor is one of the best ways." Scarcely a day passes that the wisdom, foresightedness and pat­r iotism of the late Senator Joseph R. McCarthy of Wisconsin is not demonstrated anew to the people of the Republic which he tried so gallantly to save from Commu­nism. Also we have concrete evidence that the Wisconsin statesman who was so cordially hated and feared by Modern Republicans, Demo­cratic Fair Dealers, and other pro­Communists, held a place in the hearts of the American people not enjoyed by any other public ser­vant in history. This has been proved many times both before and since the Senator's tragic death and the latest evidence is provided in a handsomelv-bound volume of eul~ ogies to him which includes all material praising his work and his selfless devotion to his country which appeared in the Congres­sional record. Although the practice of having eu l o~ies of any President, Senator or Congressman who dies in of­fice orinted and bound goes back to 1894. no similar volume has consumed the space necessary to reproduce the words of praise whi~h the McCarthy book reQuir­ed. It contains 354 pages which is more than four time<; the leneth of that which recorded the tributes to F ranklin D. Roosevelt and which contained only 84 pages. It seems fitting at this oin to reiterate that noboCTy ove oe McCarthy except the American people. Racial Propa~anda Makes Progress In Dark Africa The same forces of World Com­munism who are promoting racial mixing in the United States are equally active in other parts of the world and their diabolic scheme for mongrelization is re­ported to be especially vicious in Africa where blacks outnumber whites more than a thousand to one. In Kampala, Uganda, a small British protectorate the edict has gone fo rth that black, white aY!d brown races will be mixed in the schools of that small city in the heart of Africa, beginning in Jan­uary. British and other white parents there vigorously objected to hav­ing their children retarded bv Af­ricans who can't speak English to say nothing of the dane;er of con­tracting diseases peculiar to the chn~"P'1 of tl-te jun~le tribes. But the Communists who are directing the world movement for racial mixin~ have been relentless :-,.,d in Afr;,..,. ac; in the United States and elsewhere, they first .e:ot control of the school author­ities and the church dignitnies of the area and the job was done. Educators and church leaders who ar e almost invariably babes in the woods politically and who are su ckers for Communist prop­agarida, fell in line in the small Afr ican community just as they have in the United States and pro­bably never lost a night's sleep be­cause of their part in contributing to human depravity. p i tl is o• lit ci te Ja te p t< ti 0 R tc s f; ,J.nua..y, 1958 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Why The Rockefeller God Speed The Day When MOtU: . .DEADLY STILL Report Should Be Rejected We Recapture Our Freedom :(IndianapoHs stac> If there is any one man in the whole world ·,vhose suggestions or plans should not be considered by the American government, that man is any one of the Rockefeller clan. We say this because of the record of the Rockefeller Foundation which, under the present generation of that once respected family, has spent mil­Hans upon millions of dollars to So­cialize the American educational SYS­tem and which, unfortunately, has largely succeeded. The records of the Reece Commit­tee of Congress and the Institute of Pacific Relations give an idea of how many pro-Communists have been sub­sidized by that Foundation and how many subversives ha.ve been enabled to add their talent to the Interna· tional conspiracy for a Communist One·World government because of Rockefeller generosity. And yet when Nelson Rockefeller recently submitted recommendations of his committee for a military dicta­tor over the armed forces of the United States, it was accepted with as much fanfare, publicity and respectful con­sideration as might have been ac­corded one of the soundest thinking and dedicated Americans in the coun· try. Among those composing the com­mittee were a sprinkling of respect­able persons and the balance might have constituted an authentic Who's Who in the House Un-American Ac· tivities Committee files. In our opinion, only one good, sound reason is needed !or the re· jeclion of the Rockefeller recommen­dations and that is the fact that a Rockefeller made them. HEW Department Should Be Completely Abolished If there is any remaining spark of integrity among our national lawmakers or any concern on their part for Constitutional gov­ernment, the Department of Health, Education and Welfare will be dismantled by the same process through which it was set up. There was no earthly reason for creating a new Cabinet post in the first place and it was set up merely to give jobs to the President's Socialist friends and to promote the cause of Federal con­trol of the public school systems of the country. And this Folsom character who heads it now has a one-track mind on the subject and is determined to capture the schools come hell or high water. The White House Conference on Education failed to accomplish this; there is strong opposition in Congress to the pro­posal and the people are deter­mined that domination of their schools by Washington shall not be brought about. Nevertheless, Folsom goes mer­rily along with the President's plan for Federal domination and has some kind of a committee now working on it which will make recommendations to Congress that millions be appropriated for the purpose of taking the nation's public schools away from local control and delivering them into the keepin_g of global-minded pol­iticans in Washington. The American Republic has de­teriorated so gradually, political morals have sunk so steadily 3.nd the suppression of freedom has been accomplished so cleverly that it is hard for the average Ameri­can to realize to what depths of depravity we have-jallen . . Not long ago, for instance, ther.e appeared in the press a ":Fourth Annual Report11 to the President made by the Committee on Gov­ernment Contracts which would once have made any decent Amer­ican's blood reach the boiling point. The report of this committee of which Vice President Richard Nixon is the head informed the President that Nixon felt that "the committee has developed new and effective tools for identi­fying and correcting discrimina­tory situations where work is be­ing performed under government contract." The committee is con­cerned solely in mixing Negroes in with White workers and has no interest whatever in whether or not the jobs for which taxpayers must put up the money are per­formed with efficiency, speed and accuracy. The report added that "discrimination against Negroes by government contractors is greater in white collar areas than in production tasks." Not one word about idiotic government rules cons tit uti n g "discrimination" against white employers and em­ployes who may not want to hire or work with a person simply be­cause he has a black skin. The Vice President was declared to have set up a snooping agency through members of the commit­tee who make annual examinations of employment practices and as having asked government agen­cies "to keep a close check on the matter." Just imagine elected officials of the government in this Constitu­tional Republic daring to tell free Americans who they shall or shall not hire and fire. Just imagine them using Fed­eral governing machinery as their own private instrument for at­tracting Negro votes by impinging on the God-given right of decent and self-respecting American cit­izens to bring into their own places of employment any person they choose or refusing to have those around the place who, in their opinion, may be undesirable. God speed the return of the day when Americans recapture their lost fundamental freedoms, includ­ing the right to hire and fire at their own discretion, and when they show their contempt for such characters as those composing this committee by ordering them out of their business establishment just as they would any other stumble-bum whose presence is offensive and unwelcome. There has been a lot written about Houston being the aMuTder Capitat of the Wortd"' but not much has been made public about who commits the majority of the murders which have given the city this terrible reputation. Out of the last 124 murders committed 1n that city, 83, or approximately 67 per cent, were committed by Negroes. This breakdown appeared recent­ly in a Houston newspaper. As an opening wedge toward Fed­eral domination of American educa­tion, past proposals for F-ederal fi~ nancing of schools have been bad enough. 'But the new' idea feverishly taking proposed legislative shape in Washington is worse yet. Like the so-called sch,col construction bills, it is pretty enough on the surfa : e. The idea is to grant Federal scholarships to bright but poor students who might not otherwise go to college. The ex­cuse is that we need them as sc ientists and engineers. We suspect the scholarship pro­posal is a big part of what t he Fed­eral aid lobbyists have been driving at all along. They are simply taking advantage of the present hysteria about the nation's scientific needs to put over the program. If they can ·get it approved, they will be well on the way to creation of a federally selected s~holastic elite, financed by taxpayers' money and chosen accord­ing to standards dictated in Washing­ton. No such program cculd endure for long before the political leanings of the "scholars" became an issue in their selection Look what is entail ed in the pro­gram now being whipped up in the ever hopeful Department of Health , Edu:!ation and Welfare : Stepped up methods are proposed to id entify bright students as early as the fresh­man year in high school, so they can be "guided" from then on in their choice of studies. Washington, of course, would dictate the methods of identification. It would also estab­li sh the kind of advice to be given. The faithful vnssals who adhered to bureau~racy's standards· would be re­warded with a free trip to college. We are not supposed to mention cost at this time when the nation's welfare is somehow supposed to be so much more at stake than it was six months ago. Yet it does seem worth noticing that the minimum estimate of bright students who don't go to college now is 150,000 a year. At $1 ,000 each, which is a low estimate of the cost of a college year, this would mean a cost to the people of $150,000,000 the first year, $300,- 000,000 the second year, and up to $600,000,000 in the fourth year when 600,000 Federal scholars would be on the list. And don't forget that it costs the Federal government heavily to spend money. A new bureau would be necessary, and" if anyone thinks it would operate on less than $300.000,- 000 a year itself, they don't know their big government. The reason we do mention costs is that there seems to be an easier, cheaper and better way to do the job. It calls for an enlightened national leadership more interested in results than in Federal expansion. It also calls for a small measure of sacrifice in the place where sacrifice would least hurt America, the Federal bur· eucracy. We respectfully suggest that this better way is to offer income tax concessions to encourage private industry and private individuals to finance more college scholarships. The Federal tax laws now are, in the main, hard on scholarships. A philanthropist has no inducement at all to send a youth to college who is not related" to him. Corporations are in little better shape. The Federal government a:tually discourages the private creation of scholarships which it now wishes to include in an ever­widening welfare state. By all means let us increase our college scholarships, but let us do it the Ameri~an way. If tax money must Paqe 5 We Helned Push Indonesia Into Th~ Communist Orbit An illustration of our "hi-par .. tisan" foreign policy under Fair Deal Democrats and Modern Re­publicans is afforded in the p:ti­able case of Indonesia. The Indonesians were doing all right under the Dutch when a campaign for "independence'' ~~~~:t~ ;It ~~~efra~~s~;~~~ u~~~~ Washington~ jumped into the mid­dle of it with both feet and while our diplomats didn't know what they were doing and had no under­standing of the actual situation in Indonesia, we went all out for independence for the Indones­ians." They've had "independence" there for eight years now and the condition in which they find themselves is incredible, with the Communists sitting by grinning and waiting to gobble them up. As the Bloomington, Indiana, Herald-Tribune points out the vast "riches of the Indies" have virtually disappeared. Rubber, tin, copra and palm oil once exported in enormous quantities now pro­duce no income and the people there face famine because of a shortage of the rice crop. This is the result of mismanage­ment by the ignorant people in charge and although the taxpayers of the United States have been robbed of $350,000,000 which Washington politicians sent to In­donesia since 1949 for "warding off Communism", it is generally considered that it is merely a question of time until the Com­munists take over. There is no new lesson to be learned in the Indonesian debacle. It is an old story that meddling into other persons' business, either by a nation or an individual, can produce only trouble, discontent and chaos. Our miserable failure in Indo­nesia and elsewhere, however, will not keep us from doing the same thing next time and when trouble of a local nature and which does not concern us flares up in some other remote area of the world , we will pitch in, take over and louse up the works again. Nothing could amuse and please - the Soviets more than our clumsy attempts to run the business of other countries while allowing the governing machinery of our own to be shot to pieces by those charged with the responsibility of protecting and preserving it. There is to be a repercussion from the despicable action of the Federal Judge in Tennessee who gave six courageous citizens of Clinton a suspended sentence for objecting to the de~segregation ruling of the Supreme Court. Theae six citizens are going to appeal their case as they not only want personal exoneration but to pre­serve vital principles of the Re­public. Their motives are worthy and honorable but the Supreme Court being what it is, only God knows what the firial outcome will be. be involved, let it be tax deduction money-the dollars that buy 100 cents worth of value-not tax colle::ted money, which loses one ~ third to bur~ eaucracy before it is spent. We want Federal scholarships even less than we want Federal school construction. Page 6 While Congress Is Probing The Pentagon How About lemnitzer? All Americans who keep abreast of events will probably remember General Lyman L. Lemnitzer. He is the character who was put in charge of the office of For­eign Military Assistance and was responsible for the delivery of arms to Korea when Congress vot­ed large sums for this purpose. The money was made available In July, 1949. In October of that same year, a Senate Committee questioned Lemnitzer about how much of the $10,230,000 earmark­ed for Korea had been sent and how much material had been de­livered. Lemnitzer squirmed and twisted and refused to answer until mem­bers of the committee practically twisted his arm when he finally admi tted that only $200 of the amount had been made available to Korea. At about that point the incident seem ~ d to fade out of public print and, so far as we know, the mat­ter was hushed up. The last record we saw of it was a U. P. release in the Shreve­port Journal on July 6, 1957, which reported that Lemnitzer was on his way from Taipei to Washington to take over his new duties as vice Chief of Staff of the U. S. Army. While Congress is looking into the affairs of the Pentagon, per­haps it might be well to find out and bt the American people know if the other $10,229 ,800 was ever sent to Korea and if not, what happened to it. Of course ten million dollars, according to Washington's stand­ard of values, is merely chicken feed but out in the hinterland this amount is not hay and the tax­payers might like to know all about it. And while they are looking into it, Congress might ask under what particular Pentagon policy Gen­eral James M. Gavin, the Army's Missile Chief, was denied promo­tion for doing his duty and Lem­nitzer was promoted for not doing his. Washinqton is the battleground for the World and Soviet agents swarm in the hotels, the dubs, and in government offices, says the Florida Catholic official church organ of that denomination. Names pleasing to the Soviets, according to this publication, are Oppenheimer, Hiss, Kennan, Stas­sen and Watkins. "Dean Acheson is mentioned as the Kerensky of the American Communist Revolu­tion and the trail of some of the agents runs to the doors of two pink Justices of the Supreme Court"' the article concluded. Our " gains" at the Paris Con­fer ence were set forth in the press as the agreement of our "alties" to allow missile bases to be estab­lished in the countries involved. But thz real and actual result was not disclosed in regular news­papers but in o1ficial communica­tions from NATO itself and pub­lish ed by the State Department. The supreme accomplishment was a 1·esolution passed by NATO later b1·oadening the scope of that one­world organization with the final objective of ~<mutual co-existence" with the Communist world. THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE We Built the Sputniks and the Soviets Just Furnished the Dog Indianian Expresses View On Jenner's Refusal To Run An Indianapolis lady who is highly informed on politics ih that State as well as throughout the nation has given us her views on the stated intention of Senator William E. Jenner not to be a can­didate for re-election as United States senator from Indiana. Her communication was as follows: Willjam E. Jenner had no doubt of his re-election to the Senate of the United States, when he with­drew his name from nomination to that office. He took over the leadership of the Republican Par­ty in Indiana two years ago. He knows he has solid backing here. I think he doesn't know how strong he is throughout the coun­try. This respite which he has taken (which was much needed) will give him a chance to test his strength outside of Indiana. Per­sonal letters to him from individ­uals of other states will help in forming his opinion. If there is real honest-to-goodness support from the country as a whole, I believe he would consider na­tional leadership. He is a good politician as well as an honest statesman. A recent pleasant visitor to our office was Admiral John Crom.­melin, retired, of Alabama, known in that State as one of Alabama's five fighting Navy Crommelins. Two of his brothers who were in the Naval Air Force lost their lives in the South Pacific during World War II. Admiral Cromme­lin not only knows the score con­cerning the Communist World Conspiracy, and what makes it tick, but has the courage to give this information to the people in the many public addresses he makes in various sections of the country. The Admiral is currently a candidate for Governor of Ala­bama. Out in Marin County, California, "His Royal Higness Mwuabistia Nkabouri Kanstouri", ballyhooed and wined and dined as heir to the throne of the African Bangui Ubangi Shari tribe had the town on its ear. He rode high in the small towns of Marin, Lodi, Ore­ville and Chico as the gdlible mo­rons tried to outdo each other in paying him homage. The bubble was rudely shattered when cops swarmed down, arrested him and hauled him off to the pokey. He was a common cotton-picking Ne­gro from the swamps of Florida and was wanted by the police in many places where he had work­ed his skin games. In Houston a Negro woman stab­bed a white boy who is now near death in a hospital there. He ob­jected to having her sit beside him in a bus and the inevitable knife flashed and the boy was danger­ously wounded. This dastardly crime is chargeable to the coward­ly management of the Houston Transit Company which took down the color signs when some court decision ruled this had to be done in some far-off place having noth­ing whatever to do with Houston. If all the hysteria over the So­viet Sputniks was, as many be­lieve, framed up to compel the American people to further spend­ing and thereby making Lenin's prediction come true, it is cer­tainly accomplishing its objective. We are in a 'fair way toward !~~~~ing ourselves out of exist- The Eisenhower administration is now talking in terms of a $74,- 000,000,000.00 budget which sets an all-time record in an era where squandering has reached unbe­lievable proportions. At first the President talked of cutting non-military projects to the bone in order to keep the mil­itary expense at the minimum but later he indicated that he is going to again try to subsidize the pub­lic schools and if he is successful this will cost untold millions. All this is the more tragic when we consider that the Sputniks are of our creation and not of the Soviet's. Traitors among Ameri­can scientists either sold or gave the Communists the secret formu­las necessary to building these missiles and Harry Dexter White, Soviet spy in the United States Treasury gave the plates to Russia for printing untold millions of dollars which, so far as we know, they still possess. Try to avoid the unpleasant truth as we will, we can't escape the fact that our worst enemies and the most dangerous foes of the American Republic are among those who call it home. High Appointee of the White House Would Flaunt Law One of the most !lagrant examples of contempt for Constitutional Gov­ernment and for orderly procedures in the administration of the law was afforded in an incident happening in Dallas early in November. Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh of In­diana, member of the President's in­famous Civil Rights Commission and shown on the letterhead of the In­stitute of International Education, Inc., as a trustee was in that city to attend a football c;:ame. In an interview to the local press he stated that while ttre law provid­ing for the Commission stipulated that it be held to voting rights of Negroes the "commissioners may de­cide to study school integration, hous­ing discrimination, employment prac­tices and other parts of the problem". In other words, regardless of what the law on the subject may be, the commissioners will be a law unto themselves, and act accordingly. No wonder law and order in this country is at an all-time low and crime at its highest point. How much have you read in the regular press about the riots, the killings, the rapes and the vio­lence in general between the races in other cities outside the South lately? What about Philadelphia, De~rOtt, Grosse Point, Oakland, Chtcago to mention only a few? If the truth were known about the events that have taken place since the Negroes got the idea that they have been given a license to do their worst, segregation in every phase would be rest01·ed tomor­row. January, 1958 Some More About The Institute of International Education, Incorporated On several occasions in recent editions, we have mentioned the I nstitute of International Educa­tion, Inc., and have quoted offic­ial government documents listing this organization as an "American Branch of the Communist Interna .. tional." This information is con­tained on pages 4 and 6 of Union Calendar 838 issued May 26, 1956, by the Committee on Un-American Activities of the U. S. House of Representatives. We also listed the names of four men appointed to high office within recent months who are shown on the literature of the Institute of International Educa­tion, Inc., as being trustees of that organization. Two of them were members of the President's Civil Rights Commission, the Rev. The­odore M. Hesburgh of Indiana and Dr. J ohn A. Hannah of Mich­igan and Elsworth Bunker, named Ambassador to India and James D. Zellerbach appointed Ambas­sador to Italy, the latter two of whom have been confirmed by the Senate. What we did not know at the time, and therefore did not in­clude in our editorial, was the manner in which the Institute of International Education is financ­ed. We now have in our possession additional literature of the I nsti­tute from its headquarters in New York, including a folder titled "The Aims and Programs of the Institute of International Educa~ tion." Under the sub-head of "Fi­nances," the folder says: "The administration budget for 1956- 1957 is approximately $1,473,000. About half of this was received in fees from programs that liE (In~ stitute of International Educ9.tion) administered for other private and public organizations. These fees came chiefly from the U. S. gov~ ernment and from Foundations ... " If any situation ever called for clarification, we believe this one does. An official Committee of the Congress of the United States lists an organization as the "Am­erican Branch of the Communist International" and that organiza~ tion announces through its litera~ ture that part of its funds are de~ rived from the U. S. government. We respectfully suggest that surely some committee of the Con .. gress will look into the matter and inform the American people if, indeed, the taxpayers' money is being used to finance Communist organizations.

I n a personal letter to the editor this writer indulges in some plain talk about the responsibility of the South for present tragic con­ditions. While we do not agree one hundred per cent with the writer's views, we think that there is justification for the charges in most cases. While deleting the name of the author, we are print­ing the communication in full: "Dear Ida: You Southerners think you got troubles about integration and the Negro Problem? 0 Baby! I guess your liberal Southern news­papers don't tell you what's happen­ing up here. Do you read about the race riots in Chicago, and Boston and Philadelphia and other Northern cities? Not riots over a few kids, or by kids, but by hundreds and even thousands of adults at a time! Police rush around with clubs, gun and tear gas. Editorials in New York State clamor for control of the Negroes, who cause 74% of all the crimes com­mitted, and in this State there are constant demands on the part of tax­payers' groups, politicians and others that our Welfare laws be amended to prevent Negroes from coming up from the South and going immediate­ly on relief and settling down to making cash through constant illegit­Imacy. I enclose an editorial in today's Buffalo Evening News on the subject! "The Negro has always been un­welcome up North, and don't let your Liberal newspapers tell you di!Cerently. Tl"_e unions won't let him enter their strongholds; he can't get even a menial job if a white man wants it first. He is hated and des­pised - and completely segregated. The sufferings inflicted on him are appalling. You should see the Negro slums in the North. They would sick­en you. Teachers quit schools in droves when Negro children enter. There are city riots when even decent professional Negroes try to enter white trash neighborhoods. Why don't a few of you Southerners come North and see what the Negro is enduring here, and always has endured, and you'll go back full of indignation and anger and wonder if there is any Christianity left in the world. "Are you people in the South angry about the Supreme Court decision of 1954? Child! You should have heard, and you ought to h..:ar now, what the North says about it. Discount our own Libliar newspapers up here. They were born liars and live as liars and will die as liars. The peo­ple's columns in the Northern news­papers raged with fury against that decision, and expressed sympathy for the Southern citizens, both white and Negro. The hatred for the Negro is something to hear and see. Moreover, it is extremely dangerous. You have tensions down there in Dixie? Oh, Sister! The tensions in all the big Northern cities between the whites and the Negroes would set your heart to thumping. "And who made that infamous de- Eleanor - a Democrat! Incidentally, most of the men in the Court are Southerners, and that's what is burn­ing up the North. Do we like Earl Warren? We loath him. He could have had a million headshrinkers at his elbow demanding integration, and if it hadn't been for the Southern "gentlemen" on the bench that De­cision wouldn't have been passed. "I ncidentally, my dear, let us be fair. When the North was exploited tax-wise for the benefit of the South, the South was very smug about it all and eagerly accepted the money wrung from the pockets of millions of Northern working-men and women. The South didn't discover States Rights until 1954, but New York State discovered it long before that and warned the Federal Governmeo.t to keep out of our affairs, and won, too. The Feds tried to move in on power developments and we kick­ed them out. Old sins have long shadows, and the South is now suf­fering from its sins by overlooking OUR rights up North, and robbing us blind for housing, governmental projects, and God knows what else. Remember the TVA? "Besides, who elected Roosevelt and Truman, in the first place? The South, except in 1948, went heavily for them, and stood beside them. Look at Sparkman, and a few others I could name with appropriate epithets if I were not too polite. And what are your politicians doing about the de­cision of 1954? Listen to Rayburn and Johnson just once! "I have absolutely no use !or Fau­bus. He is an internationalist (as are most Southern politicians) of the worst order; he was a New Deal light, burning bright in the Com­munist murk. When those nine Negro kids tried to enter t he school in Little Rock why didn't he do the de­cent and dignified thing, and simply close the schools - as Virginia and other States intend to do if pressed? But, 0 no, he must call out the Na­tional Guard and deliberately pro­voke the Federal Government - not that I have any use for it, either. He is despised among the decent people in Arkansas. Look at the voting rec­ord for foreign aid and aid to Com~ munist and Socialist countries on the part of Southern Senators and Con­gressmen. To a man, they've eagerly supported it, while many of our Nor­thern Congressmen fight to the death agai nst it. I could name you a score, at least. I could name you Congress­men from the North who voted against Lend-Lease, and who de­nounced Roosevelt's efforts to get us into a war that was none of our busi­ness. But give me the name of ONE Southerner who opposed Lend Lease and tried to keep us out of war! Just ONE, please. "Please don't say it was Northern Democrats who took the Democratic Party away from the South. It was Southern Democrats who destroyed the old Democratic Party with their lavish spending, their support of high taxes, their fondness for the U.N., their evil internationalism, their cry for more and more Federal interven­tion in the affairs of all States. I have the documented records. Yes, old sins cast long shadows. cision anyway? Men appointed by "Harry Byrd! Don't make me laugh.

Boca Grande earthy, The Senators who refused to Transplanted Chicago Negress Longs For Her Old Mississippi Home A Negro woman who was lured to Chicago from her home in Mis­sissippi eleven years ago on false promises of a better life in the North has written an amazing let~ ter to a Southern newspaper which expresses, in our opinion, the majority sentiment of the race before International Communists stepped in to solve their "prob­lem". I n a letter to the Jackson, Mississippi, Daily News, this wo­man whose name is Sudie Mae Lewis, shows more understanding, sincerity and personal integrity than all of the spurious statesmen in Congress, in the White House and Supreme Court put together who have undertaken to handle the racial issue to their own po­litical benefit and who have mess­ed it up with immeasurable tra ~ gedy to both races. The letter said: Editor Daily News: I have writ­ten several letters to the news­papers and magazines supported by the NAACP but have yet to see one in print or a word of acknowl­edgement. So, once again I turn to my white friends tu get action. I have taught many children in the Deep South. I was born and raised in the cotton fields myself. To some, this may sound like a starved, inhuman existence, but let me say here that those were the happiest days of my life. I am getting on in years now: my health is gone. I long to spend my last days, and be buried, in Missis~ippi soiL I want my own people to lay me away in .a Christian manner in a free churchyard. Eleven yea rs ago I heeded the condemn Joe came unanimously from the Nor th and the Middle West. I have the record, too. "How many Southern Senators de­mand a Third Party? Not one! But in the North I've heard hundreds of conservative Republican and Demo­cratic politicians speak seriously of it. The money being donated for a third party is coming almost exclu­sively from the North. I know. I'm part of the movement. When it be­came evident that Roosevelt was pushing us into a war the clamor against him came strongly from the Northern people, but Oh, how the South adored the idea! They were always Anglophiles. I was all over Florida last year, tal king to South­erners, and one would think I had insulted the Holy Ghost, Itself, when I declared myself against English Socialism and ''liberalism" and Amer­ica's intervention in the war, and the U.N. But I can get hundreds of peo­ple up here to come hear me, at the drop of a hat, to talk aGainst the U. N., taxation and internationalism. I know. I have a roomful of Patriotic citations which I have received from Northern organizations. - Practical­ly ALL the patriotic organizations fighting Communism, U. N. 'sm, the 16th Amendment, etc., etc. are or­ganized up here. Where are there such organizations in the South, pray tell me? In fact, a Northern Senator told me only a month ago that if we are to free ourselves from the U. N., get rid, of the income tax, restore our freedoms and States Rights, and bring back the Constitution, we'll have to put a curb on the South! Yes, ma'am!!!" wild tales told down there of the wonderful North. I came to Chi­cago with the hope of becoming a society lady, like I had heard so much about . But what I want to tell my peo­ple, the colored people of Missis­sippi, is that: J ust being allowed to sit up in front in crowded buses and here and there a colored child in school with the whites; does not mean and never will mean that the respectable white pzople will take you into their homes and their hearts freely and fully, as they do one of their own kind. And the whites who will and do are just mixed breed trash that any self respecting Negro will do well to shun. I beg you to listen to one who k nows about these things. For your own sake and the welfare of com­ing generations, do not push inte­gration. Stop and think these things through. It just means giving up your own life and none of us can ever be happy trying to adjust and conform to the rigid rules laid down for us by white society. When you give up your own schools and churches you are giv­ing up your last hold on yo:Jr precious freedom. Down there you can meet and mingle and serve God in your own way, shout and sing, if you feel like it. Here, you would be thrown in jail if you attempted to shout to God in church, or anywhere else. Down there you can have your own enterta inment in your own way. Nobody d isturbs you so long as you don't di sturb the peace. You have as good schools and churches there, as you will ever have anywhere in this world and a lot more freedom than you will find on Northern trails. II you can't be anything worth~ while in a segregated school, you certainly won't amount to anything in an integrated school. One other thing I have learned and want to pass on to you - nine - out of every ten dollars you hand over to the NAACP goes to pay white agitators of newspapers and magazines. This is no heresay; I have worked for them and I know their price is high. They are well paid to peddle their agitation and stir up trouble. And all they care for is the money you pay them, Just try paying them a social call. Stick to your own way of life. Be proud of your own race in­stead of trying to push and shove into places where you won't Oe happy. I have no regrets I was born black. I have done what I could to help my race improve their way of life. Don't blame the white race, or any other race ~or your failures. The fault is purely your own. We all have the same opportunity. It's _ up to each race to rise or fall. You've never had it so good as you have in dear old Dixie today. God, being willing, I am coming home to Mississippi this fall, where black is black and white is white, and all a friend to man. Sudie May Lewis P•g• a Wisdom of McCarthy Comes Back to Haunt the Senate Senate Majority Leader Lyndon Johnson and others of his party are screaming to high heaven over the bungling and delay of the missile program of the Pentagon but, somehow, there is a hollow ring to their voices in view of what they did to McCarthy when he said the same thing almost two years ago. In April. 1956, the intrepid and f earless Wisconsin Senator who always went to the heart of the subject without weighing the po­litical consequence to himself, said on the floor of the United States Senate: "Despite all warnings about Communist-guided missile pro~ gress, we still have received no assurance from our own govern­ment that the United States is go­ing all out in an effort to catch up with the Soviet Union. On the contrary, we know that the chief proponent of a crash-guided mis~ sile program ... lost his job two months ago because he advocated ~~fow~l s~~t.u~h~rj~~~· ~~~~~:~= sional committee with full sub~ poena powers to investigate the ~~~~e~ v~!J:~~ e~~o;~~~ p~~~e~~ . . . If we are falling behind in the development of a weapon that may permit Communism to con· quer us, then we must find out who is responsible and what mot­ivated those who are responsible." When Senator McCarthy issued this prophetic warning, there was a big chunk of silence in John­son's corner which reverberated throughout the Senate Chamber and especially on his side of the aisle. Now two years and two Sput­niks later, Senator Johnson has reached the same conclusion that was advanced by a great and good man in 1956 and while we are glad he finally caught on, we think two years is far too long a period of time to elapse before an idea sinks into the human cranium. Joe McCarthy was riding the engine; Johnson has grabbed the tail end of the caboose. Patriots Who Deserve A Special Star In Their Crown All over the United States there are men and women who cannot financially afford to contribute to organizations or publications en~ gaged in patriotic activities but who are rendering invaluable ser­vice to their country nevertheless. These men and women constant~ ly circulate patriotic literature and publications and many of them spend money actually needed for living expenses in buying postage. Of course it is not very formid~ able competition for the big Foundations and the left-wing or~ ganizations, to say nothing of tax­financed government agencies, who are flooding the country with - pro-Communist literature and who do not have to be concerned about the cost of their propaganda ac­tivities. But these fine Americans are deserving of the commendations of all those who love the Republic and are entitled to a special star in their crowns. THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Communist Defense Lawyers Claim Supreme Cour·t Is Robbing Them of Their Clients Attorneys who specialize in defending Communists are becoming worried, according to a pres's release under a Washington dateline on December 12. Their concern stems from the fact that the Supreme Court is releasing Communists from jail.s and penitentiaries and deliv­ering rulings which exonerate Communist defendents in such a steady stream that the attorneys for these subversives fear that they will be unable to make a living, and may have to turn to other professions. Since these lawyers have specialized in defending Communists, they have, of course, lost all respectable clients and legitimate legal business. The information was based on a tape recording obtained by in­vestigators for the Senate Internal Security Sub-Committee during a meeting of Attorneys specializing in defense of Communist party of~ ficials which was held a t the Biltmore Hotel in New York in October to discuss their legal problems. Summed up, their conclusion was, in effect, that since the Supreme Court has become largely a battery of defense lawyers for Communists, Negroes and other minority groups, attorneys who specialize in such things are being put out of business. Since last May the High Court has freed thirty-eight top-level Communists in this country, records of the Senate Internal Security Sub-Committee reveal, has invalidated the Smith Act which banned the advocacy of the forcible overthrow of the American government, and has said, in effect, that when a Communist is charged with ad­vocating the overthrow of the government, it must be proved that such advocacy would lead to force and violence. The meeting at the Biltmore in New York was under the sponsor­ship of the National Lawyers Guild and, according to the tape record~ ing one of the lawyers attending assured his comrades that even if they decided then and there to advocate the violent overthrow of th .. e American government, nothing would happen to them because of the Supreme Court's recent rulings. "Our job is to change the political climate of the country" re­marked one of the attorneys at the meeting who must have just awak­ened from a Rip Van Winkle sleep since he was apparently unaware that he was a little late with his proposal, and didn't know that this was already accomplished. Singled out for special praise by the Communist defense lawyers at the meeting were Earl Warren, Chief Justice of the Court and Asso­ciate Justices William 0. Douglas, Hugh Black and William J. Bren­nan, the latter being the character whom the late Senator Joseph R. McCarthy pointed out as soft on Communism when he asked his col­leagues in the Senate to refuse to confirm him. "Appreciation Dinners" Are Often A Joke On Those Who Finance Them Around the middle of December a rash of "appreciation dinners" broke out all over the country. In the event one is not familiar with the term, an "appreciation din­ner" is peculiarly an American insti­tution which was born in the fertile brains of the National Chairmen of the two major political parties but which is executed back in the hin­terland by gullible voters who fur­nish the hall, the "vittles" and the local orator to introduce the honoree. So clever and subtle are the organi­zational experts who promote these dinners by remote control that those who put up the money, haul in im· portant guests and do the leg~work generally, are usually convinced that it was they who thought up the idea. "Appreciation dinners" are given to various lawmaking dignitaries of both Houses of Congress and have sundry objectives. Perhaps the Party in power wants to promote some un­popular legislation which will fur­ther soak the long~suffering taxpayer in which case the honoree of an "ap­preciation dinner" is expected to ex­ert his charm and forensic attain­ments in softening up the electorate in his home State thereby reducing the possibility of organized protest from that section. Or it may be that the Party out of power wants to trot out one of its spavined horses for approval by local yokels before entering him in the grand Presideqtial sweepstakes in an effort to get back in power. An­other reason could be that the record of the Party to which the honoree belongs is pretty shabby and the leaders figure that the glib tongue of the recipient of the "appreciation dinner" can convince his constituents that he and his colleagues were per­forming as far~seeing statesmen, rath­er than double-crossing traitors, when they voted against the economic in­terests and internal security of the United States. If the honoree has a wife who is: on to her job, she can work the other side of the street by holding forth at a tea !or the ladies. If he is a bachelor, so much the better for the feminine element of the elector~ ate is a pushover for the unmarried man in high public office. After all, he may be on the make for a wife and even though she may not be a candidate herself, almost every wo­man has a daughter, a niece or a friend who would exactly fill the bill and who would rise and shine in Washington. And such are the vagaries of hu­man nature that, although the voters may have called the honoree every dirty name in the calendar during some previous campaign or when he voted contrary to their beliefs, many of them are unable to resist attend~ ing these "appreciation dinners" and applauding until they get calluses on their hands. During the period we mention, there were around fourteen "appreci­ation dinners" being held in various sections ol the country by both Re­publicans and Democrats and although we have made earnest inquiry, we have been unable to find out from either the promoters or the guests at such affairs just what the various hon­orees had done to inspire "apprecia~ tion" on the part of the taxpayers. January, 1958 National Church Council Again Runs True To Form At the meeting of the National Council of Church es of Christ held in St. Louis early in De~ cember, a new president was chosen for the group. It is almost laughable to specify what type of person this new pres .. ident of the NCC is because it is somewhat like playing the same record over and over again . So we are not going lo enum­erate the extensive Communist Front record of the Rev. Edwin T. Dahlberg fir st because it is not news since it is a familiar pattern of those selected for that post and second because this list of his affiliations has been widely published since his selection for the job. It has been estimated by thought­ful Americans who are amazed at the progress of the Communist apparatus in its announced pro­gram of infiltrating the churches, that the hold of this deadly ideol­ogy on American churches can­not be broken until seventy per cent of the ministers of the big city churches are either re-con~ verted to Christianity or this same percentage of such ministers are muzzled by a financial boycott on the part of individual church mem­bers. What in the name of all that is Holy can the good church people of the American Republic mean by following such leadership as that offered them by the National Council of Churches which is on record as endorsing every pro­posal sponsored by tba....A.m..er.i. Communist Party and plugged in the Daily Worker? From the retired headmaster of a bo11S' school: "Your lead editor­ial ·in the September edition of the Southern Conservative ti­tled " Violent Hatred of White South is back of Civil Rights Leg­islation" deserves to rank with the remarks of Patrick H,enry and other immortal American states· men." One of the contributing factors to our failure in the missile field was probably the administration"s concentration on getting the color­ed vote by the sending of the armed forces into Little Rock. From a good friend in Chevy Chase, Maryland: "Word comes to me that Bishop Angus Dun of the Washington Cathedral is trying to influence a local home for un~ wed mothers to integrate. Now we are calling him 'Black Angus'." An Ohio labor union goon has suggested that clergymen should set up a labor union of their own to which all ministers should be .. long. This is just about what it would take to finish us off so far as Christianity is concerned. Min­isters should belong to nothing ex~ cept their own church and such fraternal, social and civic groups as may appeal to them. The down­fall of Christianity, and the trend to Marxism in the United States got its greatest impetus by the set~ ing up of the National Council of Churches which is, in effect, an international union promoting sub .. versive causes.
